Living on the Edge
So many today are feeling uncomfortable with life the way it is. And, this is many times the only way I can get you to start moving again. You wonder why you are so dissatisfied with life and the way you picture it to be. Did you ever wonder why? Maybe it’s because it is time to move. It might be that your own soul is calling you deeper into me.
If, you were totally happy with the things you see, feel, and enjoy you would not want to move at all. You would just stay complacent and clueless. This uncomfortable feeling, this feeling of uneasiness…could just be me…calling you into deeper territory…maybe even to the edge…Are you feeling edgy? Maybe, you should.
Contrast and storms are coming into many of your lives. This feeling of utter dissatisfaction might just be a stirring of the pot…the pot of what you call your life. Without this stirring or the re-arranging of all you thought to be making you feel uncomfortable, what if this was my call to take you to the edge?
Why the edge? Why not something easier or smoother? Maybe it’s because that is where I dwell. Maybe it’s because you will find your answers there. After all, at the edge, you have fewer choices to play with. Your choice is to go to the edge…which always leads to the sea…or to stay where you are and experience what you have always experienced…the predictable…even the mundane.
God is not in the predictable…He is always in that which you call unpredictable. The place of faith and trust is where I dwell. Why trust when everything is clear? Why trust when there is nothing to put your faith in? It is easy to have faith and trust when you know exactly every step to take without having any fear of falling or stumbling.
So many want the easy way…the way that is predictable…dependable…and so logical. This is not the place of Spirit…this fosters complacency and passivity. I am always on the move…I am always expanding into newer horizons…I stand on the edge and I laugh.
Can you laugh at the edge? When your back is against the wall what do you do? I tell you to go to the edge…climb deeper with me to the sea below. I am the sea and I am not predictable. I am dependable though. You can trust and have utter and complete faith in me.
It is easy to be status quo…to have need of nothing. Anyone can live that way. Are you an overcomer? Jesus was an overcomer. How can you be an overcomer? You must first have something to overcome. Makes sense, doesn’t it. What is standing in your way? What are you overcome with? Do you want to overcome like Jesus? You can…come to the edge. Cut yourselves loose from the predictable and that which causes complacency.
Come to the edge where I am. I will take you into depths and heights unknown and unexplored. Where did your childlike faith and curiosity run off to? Where did your courage go? You can easily find it again deep within. It has always been there why not find the place of God again?
So, if you are feeling edgy…go to the edge my beloved. Cut all the strings and chords that bind you and hold you back from me. Let it all go. It is not worth anything anyway is it? It is just the trappings of life. It will all pass…but I will never pass…and you will not either. It is time for you to be a superhero…the superhero that you already are…just like your brother Jesus and your Father God…this is who you really are.
Man will lie to you and say the earth is flat, or you can’t do this, or don’t do that. What does that mean and where has it gotten you so far? It has led you only to a place of utter and abject poverty of heart and, to your soul’s destitution. This has not served you well. You are princes and princesses. Start to act like you are a child of God. You have everything you need or would ever desire with me. I am rich. So are you. You just act like you are not.
So, my child, go to the edge. I will not let you fall. I will bear you up on eagle’s wings and together we will fly or scale the mountain. We will overcome because we are a team…inseparable and undefeatable.
You are never alone with me. I will bear you up when you can’t go any further. All you have to do is look to me…trust in me…have faith in me. I cannot lose…and either can you lose. All supposed loss is just an illusion anyway. It is impossible to lose with me at your side. The game is over. You are a winner!!! Start acting like one!!!
